Moslems are complaining?
Reader comment on: Muslims Angry Over Spanish Citizenship for Jews
Submitted by Michael, Dec 21, 2012 12:57
The Moslem claim for reciprocity seems ironic to me in view of the fact that they came to Spain as conquerers, fully intending to colonize and rule there forever. They are now complaining that because they were repulsed and driven out, they somehow are deserving of either compensation or of becoming citizens. Their original intent, dominating others in the name of Islam, has not moderated one bit. In contrast, the Jews in Spain came there as refugees, seeking only safety, with no intent of anything except living in peace. Jews have been model subjects and citizens, if not good Christians, for their entire history in Spain and elsewhere.
Vis a vis the Jews, the Spanish are correcting an egregious historical injustice in restoring citizenship to them. Vis a vis the Moslems, the Spanish liberated themselves of an occupier, who now whine about unfair treatment in favor of the Jews because they cannot (yet) proceed with their occupation and subjugation of Spain. And let's not even look at how Moslems themselves treat displaced and occupied people everywhere they prevail.
Chutzpah, that's the word.

While the Palestinian Authority is calling on the international community to punish Israel for imprisoning Palestinians, its own security forces continue to hold hundreds, if not thousands, of Palestinians in prison, some tortured, some without trial.
This year alone, the Palestinian Authority has arrested 357 Palestinians accused of security/political offenses, 42 of whom are university students.
Of course, the arrests continue to be ignored by the mainstream media in the West. This is a story that does not reflect negatively on Israel, so is therefore not considered worthy of being reported to Western audiences.

Kosovo shares one social problem with Saudi Arabia. That is the infiltration of radical Islam. The story of victimized moderate Muslim clerics and intellectuals, removed from their congregations, dismissed from their teaching positions, and physically attacked, remains to be told.

In the West, the Arabization of Muslim communities has occurred with government assistance, which, through imposed policies of multiculturalism in the name of diversity, has effected the destruction of South Asian culture.

The problem of Islam in public schools has been allowed to snowball to vast proportions... not hundreds but thousands of British schools have come under the influence of Muslim radicals.
Bains was also instructed to stop teaching citizenship classes because they were deemed to be "un-Islamic," and to introduce Islamic studies into the curriculum, even though Saltley is a non-faith school.
Schools should not be allowed to become "silos of segregation." — Nick Clegg, Deputy Prime Minister

Europe's biggest failure vis-à-vis Turkey is another example of its unwillingness to face unwelcome truths: that whenever Islamists go into politics, they never turn out to be moderates.
EU leaders are now, belatedly, coming to realize that Erdogan is not their friend.
